Some things that are not in my novel:

This might explain why I was so relieved to read this month's Poets and Writers, in which agent Emily Forland speaks about Susanna Daniel's novel, Stiltsville, which was not "narrated by a flamingo, or written in interconnected haiku."

Because these are the things I worry about, you know, when I'm not worrying about all the other stuff, like laundry, who is or isn't smoking weed, and who happens to be dating the most popular girl in school.

*I totally want to read this.


  1. I read 'Stiltsville' as 'Stittville'. Though I suppose novels about decaying rural towns are not that uncommon.

  2. add some footnotes just to be safe. i hear they're awesome.
